MT. VERNON —
Freshman were in pads Monday night and working on plays throughout the practice.
In addition to the games, the non-freshman players, had film sessions along with meetings. Tonight the roles reverse with upper classmen in pads before the team takes a night off. All four grades finish the week in pads both Thursday and Friday.
After this week, the Rams players will take a mandatory break from football action before the team's first official practice on Wednesday, Aug. 14.
“You want to be prepared, and you want to think about all the little situations that maybe you've covered or maybe need to cover better,” Shaner said of the opening practice.
The annual Meet the Rams night will be held again this season on Friday, Aug. 23 with Mt. Vernon opening its season on the road at Rochester the following Friday night.
